We wanted to send out an EXCLUSIVE bonus reward to all the backers that have pledged over $250.00 for the ISSUE 2 kickstarter. We will be including this 11 x 17 Kickstarter Exclusive Metal print to all our backers that pledge $250.00 or more. This will also include all the backers that make additional pledges towards a total of 250.00 or more in BACKERKIT for additional items after the kickstarte campaign is over. We wouldn't be able to put out this book without the help of everyone on kickstarter. Once we hit 50,000 we will be announcing more Rewards for all tiers.
ALSO.... We we will be revealing a NEW EXCLUSIVE COVER in the next couple days by a guest artist that has now joined the WHITE WIDOW team.
WHITE WIDOW #2: NAKED TRUTH
The fable says that Truth and Falsehood went bathing; Falsehood came first out of the water, and dressed herself in Truth’s garments. Truth, unwilling to take those of Falsehood, went naked.
We're finally here... the much-anticipated White Widow #2! As promised, you and Gabrielle will get answers in this issue. And if you missed out on the first issue, don't worry... we've even included in this campaign both the digital and special extended reprint editions of #1!
Extended? That's right... Issue #1 sold out worldwide immediately, and we were forced to go back to print. But we never try to do things simple... so we upped the ante with 8 extra pages (including 2 new story pages not found in any other editions!) and three cover variants (including an exclusive foil variant by Jamie Tyndall)!
But enough of the preamble, we know what you really want to see, and that's the amazing selection of covers we've got in store for you this time. So feast your eyes on them and the categories listed below:
WE DID IT! Thanks so much for helping us reach our initial goal in just two hours! But that's just the beginning. We have some AMAZING push goals planned, and every dime helps push this project forward to continue bringing you more amazing work and even new projects. So your continued pledges and support are needed and greatly appreciated. Now, the REAL fun begins!
ABOUT WHITE WIDOW
Gabrielle Garcia was a typical American girl going to college to follow in her father's footsteps - or so she thought. One night, her father barged into her dorm room, suffering from a fatal gunshot, and injected her with... something. That was the moment she became the White Widow. She barely survived her first issue, and escaped with a thumb drive her father gave her. Now we pick up moments after the cliffhanger conclusion to discover the NAKED TRUTH behind Gabby and her strange abilities.
White Widow is a new ongoing comic set in the new "Absolute Comics" Universe. It is created by Jamie Tyndall with Benny Powell. This is the first issue featuring a hero unlike any other.
The concept and name for the character was first conceived by Jamie Tyndall. Jamie is relatively new to the comics industry, but he's made an immediate impression with his covers for Zenescope , IDW Entertainment, Valiant Entertainment, Lady Death, Contraband, and Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment. He's worked on numerous titles including: GI JOE, Transformers, My Little Pony, TMNT, Archie, Grimm Fairy Tales, Alice in Wonderland, Ninjak, Godzilla, Lady Mechanika and Danger Girl.
The comic itself is written by veteran comics writer, Benny R. Powell, whose credits include years at Marvel Comics, Red Giant, Academy Comics, and now Absolute Comics. He's worked on titles such as X-Men, Fantastic Four, What If..?, Marvel Vision, Robotech and the massively popular webcomic Wayward Sons: Legends and Markiplier comics.
Interior pencils include work from Jamie Tyndall, and a new, amazing talent Iwan Nazif! Iwan got his first international contract as the comic artist from Dark Horse Comics for KULT comic series. This was followed by Mass Effect 2 and 3, also published by Dark Horse Comics. Iwan eventually received a contract to illustrate Dreamworks’ How To Train Your Dragon comic series published by Titan Comics. Now his considerable talents are focused on White Widow alongside Jamie! Iwan's already-awesome talents have grown with the artwork he's turning in for issue #2, and we know you guys will just love it!
But enough about us... Let's get to what you really came for... the GOODIES:
Risks and challenges
The artwork is complete and everything is ready-to-print. We spent a lot of time honing our processes with the first Kickstarter and believe we now have a finely tuned machine. For one, we will begin production as soon as we have a clear gauge of how many books we will need overall, and thus shorten the delivery time. Further, problematic items have been removed from this offering.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
